I was one of many West Country MPs who called on the Government to support our dairy farmers so am really pleased to report that applications for grants open on the 18th June. Details are available here.
Good news this week as details were published of the Dairy Response Fund set up to provide support because of the drop in milk sales. This will help a lot of our dairy farmers here in the South West and it’s great the Government has listened to calls to help this crucial sector.
There are a number of important Government issues being worked on this week and yet it is slightly surreal in what remains a time of great anxiety for many of us, with meetings conducted over Zoom or Skype as we all look for ways to move forward.
